  • TUBAL SURGERY

    What is it?

    • The Fallopian Tubes normally serve as the pathway of the egg to the sperm or the fertilized egg to the uterus.
    • However, when blocked, this passage is restricted, resulting in infertility.
    • The type of tubal surgery performed depends upon the location and extent of the blockage in the Fallopian tubes.

    Advantages

    • Increased chance of pregnancy
    • Regular menstrual cycle is resumed
    • In case of a Fallopian tube removal, it acts as a permanent birth control method

    Types

    The following are the types of tubal surgeries

    • Tubal reanastomasis - This is performed to reverse a tubal ligation
    • Salpingectomy - In this surgery, a part of the Fallopian tube which is blocked is removed
    • Salpingostomy - This is performed in order to drain fluid that is built up in the tubes due to blockage
    • Fimbrioplasty - It is the rebuilding of fringes of the Fallopian tubes which have been blocked or developed scar tissue

    Why to do it

    A tubal surgery is performed in the following cases

    • Blocked Fallopian tubes
    • Buildup of fluid in the blocked Fallopian tube due to blockage
    • Reversal of a tubal ligation

    Procedure

    • Some tubal procedures are performed using microsurgical techniques, either during open abdominal surgery or using laparoscopy through a small incision in the abdomen.
    • The surgeon must have proper training and experience in microsurgery techniques and laparoscopy.
    • The surgeon uses laparoscope and micro instruments to remove the blockage, depending upon the site and severity

    Effect

    • A successful tubal surgery results in a removal of the blockage from the tubes.
    • This results in an improved chance of pregnancy.
    • If the Fallopian tube needs to be removed, the chances of pregnancy are reduced.

    Follow up

    • A Hysterosalpinography is conducted after 3-6 months post surgery to check for any recurrent blockages in the tubes
    • Any abnormal discharge or bleeding from the vagina and/or wounds should be immediately reported to the doctor
    • Sexual activities and active physical sports should be avoided for at least three to four weeks after surgery
